How Does SkinTyte™️️️ Work?

SkinTyte™️ treatment is performed with a specialized device that uses a combination of infrared light energy and a patented cooling process. The light energy is delivered in short bursts to heat deep layers of skin. The high-intensity light energy causes collagen elastin fibers to contract, which stimulates the production of renewed collagen foundation, while the cooling process helps to protect the surface of the skin and reduce discomfort during the treatment. The results show improvements in skin laxity and texture.

What to Expect During a SkinTyte™️️️ Session

Typically performed in a medical spa or dermatologist’s office, the SkinTyte™️ procedure takes between 30 and 60 minutes to complete. This is why it is considered a walk-out procedure. During the treatment, the SkinTyte™️ handpiece is applied to the skin in a series of pulses, with each pulse delivering a controlled amount of energy to the skin.

Most patients report feeling only a warm sensation during the procedure, with little to no discomfort. After the procedure, the skin may be slightly red and swollen, but these symptoms typically resolve within a few hours.

The results of the SkinTyte™️ procedure are typically visible within a few days to a week after the procedure and can last for up to several months. Patients typically undergo multiple treatment sessions to achieve optimal results.

The SkinTyte™️️️ Consultation

It is recommended that you consult a professional skin care specialist to determine if SkinTyte™️ is the right treatment for you. Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva is a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in non-surgical and surgical treatments at LEA Plastic Surgery and offers SkinTyte™️ consultations.

During the initial skin consultation, Dr. Ho Taghva will inquire about your medical history and your aesthetic goals. She will also assess your skin and problem areas to determine whether SkinTyte™️ is a good fit for you. If SkinTyte™️ is recommended, Dr. Ho Taghva will explain the procedure and answer any questions you may have.

How to Prepare for SkinTyte™️️️ by Sciton

  • Consult with your doctor: Before undergoing the SkinTyte™ procedure, you should consult with a licensed medical professional to determine if the treatment is appropriate for your skin type and condition.
  • Avoid sun damage: Protect the skin from sun exposure for a minimum of two weeks before and after the treatment. Use a high-SPF sunscreen and use clothing or a hat to guard against exposure.
  • Stop using topical retinoids: Topical retinoids, such as retinol, should be discontinued at least one week before the treatment.
  • Cleanse the skin: Cleanse the skin thoroughly the day before treatment. This will ensure that the skin is free of any oils or creams that could interfere with the procedure.
  • Wear loose clothing: Wear loose, comfortable clothing to your appointment to avoid any irritation or pressure on the treated area.

Is There Any Downtime After the Treatment? 

The SkinTyte™ procedure is a non-invasive alternative to surgery, meaning no incisions are necessary.

Are There Any Side Effects of SkinTyte™️️️ by Sciton?

Many patients do not experience any side effects after a SkinTyte™️ treatment, and those who do often find that they are mild and subside within a few hours or days. The most common side effects include redness, swelling, bruising, and slight discomfort. Less common side effects can include pigment changes or burns, and these usually occur only if the procedure is done improperly. This is why it is important to undergo the procedure with a qualified medical professional.

Aftercare For SkinTyte™️️️

Because SkinTyte™️ is a non-invasive procedure, patients can typically get back to their normal routine immediately following the treatment. However, there are a few steps you can take to ensure you get the most out of your skin-tightening treatment.

It is best to avoid anything that might irritate the skin such as direct sun exposure, harsh skincare products, strenuous exercise, saunas, and hot tubs. It also helps to stay hydrated and apply ice packs if you experience swelling and redness. Follow-up appointments with your provider are also recommended to assess your progress and determine the need for further treatments.
